Update: Police: Vehicle Hits School Bus in Queen Anne's County

Posted: Updated:

CHURCH HILL, Md. - Maryland State Police say a crash between a school bus and another vehicle sent several people to the hospital Thursday.

Troopers with the Maryland State Police Centreville Barrack say it happened just before 3 pm at the intersection of Granny Branch Road and Flat Iron Square Road in Church Hill in Queen Anne's County, Maryland. This is just off Route 405.

They say a preliminary investigation shows a 1999 Hyundai station wagon was going south on Granny Branch Road and stopped at the stop sign at Flat Iron Square Road, then proceeded through the intersection, hitting the side of a QA 2010 Blue Bird school bus going east on Flat Iron Road.

Troopers say the bus was carrying twenty-four students at the time of the accident, although they would not confirm which school they belonged to. Police say twelve passengers were transferred to another bus and four were picked up by parents. Eight students were taken to Chester River Medical Center for various injuries, but police say none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

Police say the 51-year-old woman who was driving the station wagon, as well as her 16-year-old daughter, were flown from the scene to Shock Trauma in Baltimore as a precaution.

The intersection where the accident took place was closed down for a short time while police investigated, but was reopened by 4:30pm Thursday.

The investigation is ongoing.

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.
